Stranger Things Book Tag || Tags & Awards

Hello beautiful people!

There are TWO television shows that trump all in my life … Friends and Stranger Things. With season three being OFFICIALLY released, I decided to search through the Internet in the hopes of finding a Stranger Things tag … and I OBVIOUSLY found one.

This tag SHOULDN’T really spoil too much content but it makes way more sense if you’ve watched the show — there’s a season one and season two tag, but I’m doing season one since … why not?

The Creator & Questions

The creator of this BEAUTIFULLY done tag is BookTuber Sarah Elise! Oh, and I think the GIFs are available on GIPHY but I grabbed them from The Literary Phoenix‘s post.

  1. EPIC INTRO. The opening sequence of Stranger Things is amazing and really grabs your attention. Name a book that grabbed your attention from the first page.
  2. DUNGEONS & DRAGONS. Name a fantasy world you would like to experience yourself.
  3. SQUAD GOALS. When Eleven met Mike, Dustin and Lucas it was a *mostly* perfect team. Name your favourite bookish group of friends.
  4. ABC’s & CHRISTMAS LIGHTS. Joyce Byers goes mad with grief after Will goes missing. Name your favourite mentally unhinged character.
  5. THE UPSIDE DOWN. Name a book that was the opposite of what you expected.
  6. MAD SCIENTISTS. Dr. Brenner likes to get freaky with humanity. Name the freakiest dystopian government you can think of.
  7. DEMOGORGON. Name a scary bookish creature that you would not want to come through your walls.
  8. CLIFFHANGER ENDING. Name a book that left you wanting more.

EPIC INTRO!

|| The opening sequence of Stranger Things is amazing and really grabs your attention. Name a book that grabbed your attention from the first page ||

Omens (Book One) by Kelley Armstrong — As always, Armstrong has a knack for making readers devour her books in one go. But the BEST thing about her novels (especially the first in a series) is how intense they are, immediately drawing the reader in!

DUNGEONS & DRAGONS!

|| Name a fantasy world you would like to experience yourself ||

Lyra’s World in The Golden Compass (Book One) by Philip Pullman — Other than the scary Gobblers and other menacing individuals, Lyra’s world is breathtakingly beautiful. It’s very similar to ours but more steampunk influences and with other magical beings. Also … I would hope that I somehow got a daemon afterwards … and then I would just stay there forever.

SQUAD GOALS

|| When Eleven met Mike, Dustin and Lucas it was a *mostly* perfect team. Name your favourite bookish group of friends ||

Harry, Ron and Hermione in Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling — Are we really that shocked? I think not. When I was a kid, I remember wanting to be a part of their group so badly! Honestly, this trio has it’s ups and downs … to the point of driving me nutty! But in the end, they’re there for one another. And honestly, the shenanigans they get up to can be rather hilarious!

ABC’s & CHRISTMAS LIGHTS

|| Joyce Byers goes mad with grief after Will goes missing. Name your favourite mentally unhinged character ||

Dorian Gray in The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde — He’s slow demise into madness is absolutely thrilling! The slow decay of the writing and intricate word use reflects his own undoing and it’s such a brilliant concept. From a flirtatious young man to driving himself mad, Dorian’s character evolution is one to see.

THE UPSIDE DOWN

|| Name a book that was the opposite of what you expected ||

Lola and the Boy Next Door (Book Two) by Stephanie Perkins — After reading book one, I wasn’t sure how I would feel about this one. I did like Anna and the French Kiss, but I had a lot of issues with it as well. But the sequel stepped up its game, making me SO happy I decided to give it a go.

MAD SCIENTISTS

|| Dr. Brenner likes to get freaky with humanity. Name the freakiest dystopian government you can think of ||

The Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins — Seriously, they have children battle it out and kill one another as a “lesson” and TOTALLY for entertainment. It’s messed up. I remember reading this and thinking how utterly repulsive this is … I actually had to take breaks reading it because it freaked me out.

DEMOGORGON

|| Name a scary bookish creature that you would not want to come through your walls ||

The Dementors in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (Book Three) by J.K. Rowling — The first time I read this book, I was absolutely freaked when the dementors were introduced. A creature that is literally the epiphany of fear? Yea … I’m good with not seeing this creature.

CLIFFHANGER ENDING

|| Name a book that left you wanting more ||

If I’m Being Honest by Emily Wibberley & Austin Siegemund-Broka — This book is beautiful and ends wonderfully, but I just wanted more! I loved the stories and the characters so much that I wasn’t ready to let go of them at the end. I really hope they make a guess appearance in the new books that are supposed to release in 2020!

The Nominees

I don’t know who watches Stranger Things, so I’m not going to tag people in specific. But if you want to, please go for it and let me know so I can see your answers!

  1. Great answers for this tag! Dorian Gray for the win! It fits perfectly with that prompt! 😀
    Also The Golden Compass is a great answer too! I agree with you, I wish we could all have a daemon! They sound like so much fun! 😀

    1. ME TOO!!! I’m excited to see how much they all have changed, especially since the kids have grown up so much and the older kids are now planning stuff like school and jobs and so forth. I haven’t seen that show, but I’ve heard good things! Might be next on my list 🙂

  2. I think my heart just died from shock at seeing that there is a Stranger Things book tag! I should’ve known the queen of book tags would be the one to bring it to my attention! 😉 I just finished the third season, and goodness, do I need more! I absolutely agree that Harry, Ron, and Hermione are perfect squad goals, and that Panem is one of the most frightening dystopian settings! I haven’t read the Picture of Dorian Gray yet, but it’s number on my list of classics-to-read (number 1 being Jane Eyre at the moment lol).

    Awesome tag, Jenna! ❤

    1. MUAH HA HA HA HA!!! Now that’s a catchy title! I am actually thinking of making a “find a book tag” page, where I list all the different book tags out there as I discover them. I know I love looking for them.

      Ugh yes … I got very emotional in season 3 but I’m SO excited for season 4. I hope we don’t have to wait until 2021 though …

      Yes … Panem is so messed up! Great for reading purposes, but terrifying for real life.

      Jane Eyre and The Picture of Dorian Gray are two of my favourite classics; I think you’ll greatly enjoy them both! If you’re a language and writing focused reader, Dorian’s going to blow your mind! Wilde did a fantastic job!

      Thanks love!! I can’t wait to see your answers if you decide to do this!

      1. Ooooh, I would love to see that find a book tag page! Also, I’ve only done one book tag this year, and it is SO SAD! I’m currently drafting up two, and it’s been bringing me so much joy. Lol!

        Ah, I would cry if we have to wait until 2021! I’m hoping it won’t be longer than a year before Season 4 releases! And it’s great to hear that you think so highly of both Jane Eyre and The Picture of Dorian Gray! I loved Wilde’s writing in The Importance of Being Earnest, so I can’t wait to see what he does in Dorian! 🙂

      2. When my laptop unexpectedly died on me a few months ago, I lost some of the graphics I had been planning on using for tags! I lost some motivation to do tags after that, but I’ve finally created some new little graphics for them! I can’t wait to start doing them again! 🙂
